Public Islamic schools

According to an article just published in Human Events:
Can you imagine a public school founded by two Christian ministers, and housed in the same building as a church? Add to that -- in the same building -- a prominent chapel. And let’s say the students are required to fast during Lent, and attend Bible studies right after school. All with your tax dollars.

Inconceivable? Sure. If such a place existed, the ACLU lawyers would descend on it like locusts. It would be shut down before you could say “separation of church and state,” to the accompaniment of New York Times and Washington Post editorials full of indignant foreboding, warning darkly about the growing influence of the Religious Right in America.

But such a school does exist in Minnesota, in a different religious context, and so far the ACLU has uttered nary a peep.
Unbelilevable! The longer the ACLU, People for the American Way and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State remain silent about these kinds of issues, the more they enforce the idea that they really aren't anti-religion. They are just anti-Christian!
